  • CSS..Ryan please help!

    I have this site I'm building using all css and I'm having a problem with postioning. The site looks fine in every browser on every platform... except IE5+ for windows.
    I'm aware of the problem with specifying widths in conjunction with padding and borders in IE, but I don't have any of that.

    That said - Is there a way to place two divs side by side within a containing shape? I've tried floating the left div and positioning the right div using a margin-left setting.. and it works great, except for in IE. When I try to postion the two divs using top & left relative positions, the right div positions itself under the left div. The horizontal positions stay correct, but the vertical position of the right div falls at the bottom of the left div.

    Any ideas?
    Does that makes sense?

      Hi there case. I found a link for some hacks for IE five to hide the horizontal positioning www.phespirit.info/cafe/css_hacks.htm maybe that can help. Maybe?

        Thanks guys... I just now figured it out, it was driving me crazy!!

        For future reference, if anyone's building a css page that has a centered containing shape and you need to divide it up in columns... just use float:left; for every div tag within the containing shape. They all line up nice and pretty side by side.

        I'm so happy I could shit!

                    Well, looks like I missed everything. Oh well, glad you figured it out.

                    Another good method is to set the centered div to position: relative; and then absolutely position the elements inside.

                        For some reason, when I try to position nested divs using absolute, they don't move with the main container div. Are you sure you can set it up like that Ryan?

                          I'm late to the party too. Another great resource for positioning issues and ie bugs/hacks is www.positioniseveryting.net

                                It's just what I call it when people use an expression that actually says or means the opposite of what is intended; ''could care less'' would be another prime example.

                                That makes sense, I guess. Off is the inverse of on, which makes based off the inverse of based on. Got it. ...

                                Okay, I know what a colloquialism is, but what is an inverse colloquialism?

                                Probrien, in addition to HotButton's comments, which I agree with, the ad is a bit confusing. Maybe it's lacking...

                                ''Based off'' is inverse of ''based on.'' ''Based on'' is a colloquialism.
                                I think.
                                I have not had enough to drink to play this game.

                                Thanks for the feedback. That all makes a lot of sense. I'll take these points and re-work things....
